Ric Flair Doesn’t Like Goldberg vs. Lesnar Idea

Two time WWE Hall Of Famer Ric Flair has released another episode of his podcast The Ric Flair Show in which he discusses his disapproval for the Goldberg vs. Brock Lesnar rivalry that is beginning to take form on WWE TV:

“The truth is I think Bill would be a nice addition, but, I mean, when you’ve been out of the business as long as he has, here’s the same deal: you’re wrestling Brock Lesnar, brother. That’s not a way to start out. It just isn’t. Do you know what I’m saying? Not that Bill’s fragile by any means, but when you’ve been away that long, your body hasn’t been in the ring, that’s why I say all the time, ‘time off is a wrestler’s worst enemy’. And he [has] been off a long time and to jump in there against Brock who is in peak condition all the time, because of his dual roles, either MMA or professional wrestling, he stays in top shape and I don’t know that Bill has. Bill looks great, but I haven’t seen him in the ring, so it’s a tough call. I think it’ll be interesting for the fans, but I’m glad it’s not me getting in there with Brock. I’ve been there and done that, man.”

‘The Nature Boy’ he doesn’t believe Goldberg can handle being taken to ‘Suplex City’:

“The t-shirt and it’s all over everywhere, he sells that t-shirt, Suplex City. Whoever is going to work with Brock Lesnar, whether he [has] gotten smarter, he’s not going to change his style and he’s going to get suplexed, not just once, not twice, but at least 10 times and I don’t know if Bill’s ready for that.” Flair professed, “you’re off for a couple of months, much less 10 years, you’re going to get in the ring and you’re going to wrestle Brock Lesnar the first time around? Ha! Good luck with that! That’s just the way it is. His body is not used to it and Brock is a whole different can than spearing Ric Flair, okay? Correct? I mean, I just don’t think Bill is going to be physically up for that, myself. I mean, it might look good on paper, but, God, because Brock is 10 times more aggressive now than he was the last time he wrestled Bill.”

    Who gives a holy damn what flair likes?

    This is all to get Brock Lasner to beat Bill Goldberg it how it will end up. This is the one thing left for Brock Lasner in Pro Wrestling.

    Brock will take care of him I think. As stiff and snug as he is, he’s not wreckless.

    Suplex City is not as dangerous nor threatening as the Deadly Davenport Dungeon, so could be worse
